until first pitch of OTB Opening Day 2020!

 July 6, 2020:

Dear OTB Ballplayer,

After many months of waiting and planning we now anticipate our Opening Day to be July 12 and our schedule is posted. At this time we are now in Phase 3 and have approval to play baseball games. NOTB registration is now open.

Before we can practice or play our games we need each of you to review and agree to follow our guidelines for practices, games. This is for your safety and the safety of others both on and off the field. Here is the link to our OTB COVID-19 page where you will need to sign 2 waivers and read 3 documents:

https://www.otbinc.com/otbcovid2020.html

Here are just a few steps we are taking:
  • Dugouts and common touch points will be sanitized before our practices and games. Special thanks to Chris Baldwin and A-Z Restoration for this service.
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided however we encourage you to also bring sanitizer to supplement your own safety.
  • Additional equipment including batting helmets and catchers gear have been purchased.
Please review the complete guidelines carefully and follow them diligently. Your Board of Directors have spent hundreds of volunteer hours these last few months meeting and developing these plans so we may have a successful 2020 baseball season despite the delayed start.

As you have seen, CDC and state guidelines require 6 foot social distancing, wearing face coverings, and washing your hands often. Let's not give this virus a chance to cause any more harm to any of us and the ones we love.

We currently have a limited number of waitlist player positions available if you know of anyone that would like to play this season. New players can sign up here.

If you have any questions or concerns please let your team manager know or you may contact the executive committee via email: execboard@otbinc.com Thank you for your patience and understanding. On behalf of the Board of Directors I hope you all have a great season and fun competition.

Chris
